Should we have "Advanced Searching" on Instructables?

I'm posting this topic to bring forth the idea of having advanced search capabilities on Instuctables.

If anyone has visited a member who has amassed a huge number of instructables, you'll notice that using the "next" button is rather inefficient for searching. If you don't know what I mean, go to Kitemans page and search for the first instructable he wrote. 

There are also times where you are looking for a specific instructable written by a member and would therefore need a method to do so, especially when some members have written over 100 instructables.

There may be a specific forum topic, group, guide, or question/answer that you're looking for, and again, you'd need a way to search these only.

I'm sure I'm missing a few examples, so feel free to throw in your 2 cents regarding advanced searching on Instructables, and maybe the staff might implement it for us. 

Thanks, canucksgirl

These are some great ideas guys, and I'm making a note of all of them.

You'll be happy to know that all these ideas have been expressed and discussed in-house and it's really just a matter of bandwidth allocation for our Development Team. They're a busy bunch, breaking the site and trying to make it better.

Keep those ideas coming, we want to know what you'd like to see!

Thanks Mike! That's great to hear. ;)
i think we also need a favorites search so if we have alot of favorited ibles (like me) and want to find one or find a few about a certain thing we can

Yes! Another good reason for needing Advanced Search capabilities.

I would like an option for seeing all the thumbnails on a single (long) page, so that I could scan down them.
i totally agree

Do you mean a "view all" option for a members instructables? ;)
Pretty much, yes.
that would greatly improve instructables.
what about a member search, so you can find people.
